Tom Greensall, a native of Balsall Common in England, begins his second season as a graduate assistant coach for the Otterbein men’s soccer program.
Greensall was a three-year starting goalkeeper for NAIA St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, where he received second team all-conference honors as a junior. Upon completing his undergrad, he moved to Minnesota to play semi-pro soccer for Duluth FC in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).
His Duluth team won the North Conference championship before eventually falling in the national Last 16 game. Greensall was voted team MVP by the club’s fans, was chosen to the NPSL Northern’s Team of the Year and landed honorable mention status on fiftyfiveone.com’s Team of the Year.
Greensall suffered an injury during his second year and transitioned into a coaching role, helping Duluth finish second in the conference and notch the program’s first-ever playoff victory. He has since gained coaching experience at the club, high school and collegiate levels while also running private goalkeeping sessions and university ID camps. In addition, Greensall served as goalkeeping coach for the Iowa All Stars.
During his time in Minnesota, Greensall has served as head coach of the Hermantown Girls U17 squad, assistant girls coach at Denfeld HS and then goalkeeping coach at College of Saint Scholastica. His lone season saw the Saints break two NCAA records, record the longest conference win streak and win their eight-consecutive regular-season title.
